Can someone please tell me how hard it really is to take care of a human hair wig? I also imagine that it takes more care for a cheap one than a good one. ?? But isn't hair "hair" ?? Why ever is hair…Continue

Anyone had any one of these incidents?? I am younger than my years, or was until my hair started falling out. That was 4/08. Maybe it was because I used to go to a club on Saturday nights..my baby fine hair did nothing, so I would always wear a cool blonde wig...it made me feel better about myself..until...maybe it was the alcohol too but women would "look" at me and I would see that they were talking about me, and then their friends would "look"..it made me feel self conscious. The time when… Continue

Hi Lexi, thanks for your comment on my wig. It is a human hair wig that I get made up in a factory in China. I have had some trouble with online wigs that don't fit my pin head or that itch and scratch my scalp or look too thick for me. This way or ordering doesn't suit everyone, it can end up in disappointment if not done correctly or you use the factory hair. I send the hair to them, it's hair I bought online. It's not a cheap alternative but still cheaper than many wigs.

Hello Lexi, I do not order off a website. To me it was all to confusing and difficult and for that reason after one year of corresponding with 6 factories in Qingdao China I decided  I needed to go there and meet the owners and managers. Now when order I know exactly who I am dealing with and my orders go without a hitch. They send me pictures of the cap before hair is installed and then after so that I might view it before it goes in the mail. I buy for my daughter who is 27 years old who wears her hair long and color #4. I measure her head about 10 times to be sure that the cap fits properly and make sure density is such that she is not warm or it looks like a helmet. Helping other with Alopecia is my passion. I am glad to help you if you would like. You can email me at georged5050@gmail.com and I would be glad to send you pictures of the wigs I have had made and caps without hair for you to view. These are human hair, Chinese, Mongolian or European Quality hair. I truly believe that if I was lucky enough to find this factory and have become very close with the owner that I must help others so they can live their lives to the fullest. All my best Lisa

Hi Lexi. No im still searching as well. I wore "Tatum" for a bit. Now "Codi" not all that happy with. I cut the bangs and I think they look awful. Color isn't right as well. It's creamy toffee. Darker blonde then my hair. It does fool people however. I'm looking for one I can feel pretty in. Hasn't happened yet. Anxious over my first summer sporting a wig. Huge adjustment. Not as free as before. Hopefully in time. I want to warn you about human hair wigs. They behave like human hair. I paid $1200 for a Jon Renau washed it once. It looks a mess even after I took it to get styled. The blondish hair is all fried looking. They saw me coming... So the search is still on. All local shops are stocked with permatease wigs. I don't care for permatease. Now I'm paying restocking fees/shipping etc.

Hi Lexi, it's the Scarlet by John Reneau, I also have the Julianne by John Reneau, which looks very similar, but is all hand tied monofilament. The Scarlet is a standard open weft cap wth a lace front it's the less expensive sister wig to the Julianne. They are both extensively reviewed by folks on YouTube if you want to see other regular people wearing them. I usually get my wigs from Wigs.com.

Hi Lexi - I have two Ellen Wille's, Code Mono and Mega Mono. I don't wear wigs full time as I'm still rocking the Milan topper, but I do wear them on the weekends sometimes. I've washed both several time and the fiber has held up really well. I'd say it's on par if not slightly better than Noriko fiber (believe it's all made by Alderans anyways). Hope that helps!

You are welcome.  As a wig wearer we are always looking for a good wig and comfort is so important!  If you ever hear of anything else let me know.  Happy Holidays :-)

Hi Lexi,

I bought my Fortune Wig in Sept 2014.  It is the Mazali style, 14" length.  My wig did not look real thick but I did have it thinned out some and cut in a shag type.  As far as the wig being hot, I don't see any difference.  When I lived in FL I had my bio hair and when it was hot my head was hot too!  Now I live in TN on the Plateau so our weather is much milder.  I could never get the courage to shave my head so I keep what hair I have in a short pixie.  This may have something to do with the comfort level of wearing the wig.  I could not be happier with the way this wig has held up.  I wash it often and let it dry naturally over night. It has not faded and I still haven't noticed hair falling out.  I use to do trail challenges with my horse but now we are learning to heard cattle.  My wig does not slide on my head and blows in the wind like bio hair.  The Follea rep that I ordered my other wig through recommended a WiWig band to help make the wig feel secure so I use it with my Fortune wig too.  When I purchased the Mazali I called them and the lady told me about this wig.  I had to order an extra small cap in the Follea but I took a small in the Fortune.  The sales person did sew in the silicone(?) non slip pads which must help.  The wig arrived in a nice zipper carry bag and extra silicone.  I will definitely order another wig from them.
